Prince Albert, it was great meet you and your wife! Thank you for taking pictures. I loved touring your garden and seeing the beautiful plants on your Photobucket site.

Yes, we expected and had a small turn out today. A lot of people just didn't have time to get plants going due to the cold winter and late spring. The pavilion has to be reserved months in advance so there was no changing the day.

I guess there were about twelve people there, but the small group gave us a chance to visit and yakkity yak more. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but missed the other people that usually come and couldn't this time. Hoping to see you ALL mid October. Date to be announced.

I've already got some in my things planted -- including the brugs! Can't wait to get out there tomorrow and get the rest going. Thank you everyone for all the neat plants, seeds, soil mixes and yourselves! :-)

It was good to be able meet some of the group and to put faces with the names. I think it is neat to be able to meet each other and share things.
Some day I will get the picture posting thing right and get clickable pics up

Thanks for the pictures! My camera was right on the counter where I left it. haha

I am so glad y'all came to join us. Yes, it is fun to put names and faces together.
I some how got away without getting a cutting of the white brug.

As Roselee said, there usually more people.

We could meet you when we go to Beeville the next time to get them to you. we usualy get off in San Marcus and go down 123 to Seguin then on down to Beeville. It would not be out of the way to go through SA then go down 37 toward CC. That's the way my dumb GPS wants to go anyway.
Let me know and we will make it happen.

Thanks for the pictures pa. It was great to meet you both. Thanks for the seeds and the white brug.

Been outside for two days preparing and planting the swap plants. Today is rainy so it's an inside day for research on the best way to plant seeds.

It looks like I may need to divide them up after they get a little growth. they are planted in a 4x8 sandwich tray. I should be able to divide that into about 15 groupings.
